Although the specific impact of Slovakia's mass testing could not be disentangled from the contribution of other concurrent control measures (including closure of secondary schools and restrictions on hospitality and indoor leisure activities), statistical modelling by Pavelka et al. estimated a 70% reduction in the prevalence of COVID-19 cases compared with unmitigated growth. The UK piloted mass testing in Liverpool in November 2020 after the city experienced the highest COVID-19 prevalence in the country. Slovakia applied more pressure on its citizens to get tested than did Liverpool, by requiring anyone not participating in mass testing to quarantine. The Liverpool testing uptake was consequently lower than Slovakia's, involving 25% of the population in 4 weeks. Liverpool's public health service valued the testing as an additional control measure, but impacts were limited by lack of support for those in socioeconomically deprived areas facing income loss from quarantine after a positive test ( 2 ): Test positivity rates were highest and testing uptake lowest in the most deprived areas ( 2 , 11 ). Similar socioeconomic barriers were reported for test uptake among care home staff ( 12 ). This highlights the importance of addressing public perceptions of testing and support for low-income workers to quarantine when implementing mass testing. Predictive value of testing changes with prevalence When testing 100,000 individuals with a lateral flow device with 80% sensitivity and 99.9% specificity, the proportion of false-positive and false-negative test results will vary according to the prevalence of infection. The predictive value of testing varies with the population prevalence of infection and phase of the epidemic curve ( 7 ). As the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infections decreases, the proportion of false-positive test results increases, whereas the number of false-negative test results decreases. For example, with 99.9% specificity (proportion of noninfections that the test rejects) and 80% sensitivity (proportion of infections that the test detects), the positive predictive value (proportion of people with a positive test result who are infected) is 89% when the prevalence is 1%, and it drops to 44% at 0.1% prevalence (55 in 100 positive test results are false). In absolute terms, however, if testing 100,000 people, these scenarios would result in 99 false positives (out of 899 positive results) and 100 false positives (out of 180 positive results) for 1% and 0.1% prevalence, respectively (see the figure). Confirmatory RT-PCR tests after a positive LFD test result was recently reintroduced by Public Health England because of both the low positive predictive values of testing at low prevalence of infection and the utility of reusing PCR samples for viral genetic sequencing in variant surveillance ( 13 ). The pilot in Slovakia was conducted while the prevalence was still high (3.9% in areas with the highest rate of infection). Rapid antigen testing was used as an additional tool to identify a substantial proportion of asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2–infected individuals, who were required to quarantine. Additionally, those who did not agree to take part in testing were required to quarantine, thus reducing the chance of transmission among those who were permitted to mix. At higher prevalence, more SARS-CoV-2 infections can be identified, but the proportion of false-negative tests is also higher, so the reliance on other control measures is greater. No matter what the prevalence, mass testing regimes can only properly be considered amid other health protection measures.

Ex-Deloitte Auditor Faces Disciplinary Action for Improper Audit of S. Africa’s Steinhoff An ex-Deloitte LLP partner is facing disciplinary action in the Netherlands for an improper audit of Steinhoff International Holdings NV prior to the South African retailer’s near collapse more than three years ago. The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets accuses Patrick Seinstra of failing “to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence from the annual accounts,” according to papers from the hearing. Steinhoff International’s Insurers Agree to Pay $93 Million for Directors’ Liability Claims Deloitte refused to sign off on Steinhoff’s accounts in late 2017, leading to the resignation of then Chief Executive Officer Markus Jooste and a share price slump. The firm had been auditing Steinhoff for years, initially in South Africa and then from Europe after the company moved its primary listing to Germany. In the probe that followed the scandal, PwC uncovered 6.5 billion euros ($7.8 billion) of irregular transactions between Steinhoff and eight firms between 2009 and 2017. The AFM’s claims specifically relate to Steinhoff Europe, where the PwC forensic investigation showed a large part of the alleged fraud took place. The retailer’s European accounts were audited by Commerzial Treuhand GmbH, and the regulator says Seinstra failed to check the German firm’s submission was correct. Commerzial Treuhand is not aware of any misconduct in its work, Managing Director Timo Cybucki said by email. Seinstra submitted an “extensive statement of defense” in response to the AFM’s complaint. This focuses on Steinhoff’s background and the planning and design of the audit and the fraud, according to the AFM papers. Still, the AFM maintains that Seinstra “has acted culpably under disciplinary action”. The Auditor’s Chamber can impose measures ranging from a conditional fine to a cancellation of the accountant’s registration. Still, it can’t issue an order for costs or decide compensation in the way a civil court judge can. Deloitte Netherlands discovered irregularities at Steinhoff during the annual audit in 2017, “despite the fact that the auditor was found to have been deliberately misled,” it said in an emailed response to questions. It then insisted on “an independent investigation” that confirmed “the complex management fraud.” Deloitte has offered a contribution of 77.9 million euros [$93.7 million] toward Steinhoff legal settlements, without admitting liability and in exchange for certain waivers. The AFM case was earlier reported by the Johannesburg-based Financial Mail.
